New Google dashboard provides downtime information

Google has fulfilled its promise to keep customers better information of outages in its service. The search engine giant has introduced a new dashboard for Google Applications.

This feature arrived just days after a two hour worldwide outage to Gmail. The application went down due to a coding problem.

Last year Google announced its intentions to inform customers more about issues after several outages in August 2008.

Google's new dashboard shows a list of applications with a green tick if the service is up.

If there is a disruption the dashboard will show a yellow wrench, a red cross represents an outage, and a blue "i" is the icon for more information.

The service will be available to subscribers of Google apps and also has an RSS feed.

No responsibility can be taken for the content of external Internet sites.
